The latest news shows much change at the rear of the grid.
- Caterham appear to have stalled in their development path, and have been overtaken by Marussia in the constructors’ standings. They’ve just signed Charles Pic, and appear to have their eyes on Giedo van der Garde, casting doubt on the futures of their current line-up, Vitaly Petrov and Heikki Kovalainen.
- Marussia look to be progressing significantly over their rather abysmal showing last season, and are the “best of the rest” in the constructors championship, running in 10th place. They have yet to announce a replacement for outgoing Charles Pic; Max Chilton looks to be waiting in the wings.
- HRT have run into even more financial trouble, as the team is being put up for sale. Pedro de la Rosa has a contract for next year, and Narain Karthikeyan doesn’t.
A simple question: which of these three teams will outperform the others in 2013, and why? Speculate away!
